National Heritage Area (ANHA), a long-lasting PR effort to support the

region’s automotive heritage.



Supported by the US National Park Service, the organization is

fashioned on similar non-traditional areas in the Northeastern US. It

encompasses the Detroit River waterfront as well as the corridor

stretching from downtown Detroit through Dearborn, Lansing and Flint -

areas pivotal to the development of the automotive industry.



At the group’s first annual meeting last month, the ANHA introduced new

executive director Constance Budorow and elected Hudson Motor heir and

marketing communications consultant Bill Chapin president. In turn,

Chapin announced the group’s top priority: visitor program

development.



’People who come to Detroit expect to find automotive history and visit

an auto plant,’ he said. ’We need to make that happen.’
